Show-Me ECHO 101 Webinar – April 12th

April 11, 2017

Have you heard about Show-Me ECHO?  Join our webinar tomorrow, April 12th, from Noon to 1:00 p.m. and learn about it!

What is ECHO you may ask?  ECHO creates ongoing learning communities where primary care clinicians receive support and develop the skills they need to treat a specific condition. Specialists serve as mentors and colleagues, sharing their medical knowledge and expertise with primary care clinicians. As a result, they can provide comprehensive, best-practice care to patients with complex health conditions, right where they live.

Our Show-Me ECHO Clinics include: Autism, Chronic Pain, Dermatology, Hepatitis C, and Childhood Asthma. In May we will be adding a Child Psych ECHO!

To register for the webinar please email Wendy Hough at houghw@health.missouri.edu or call our office at 573-884-7958.
